Gold Trend 23/02

Gold eased from the 8-month high yesterday. The market opened near day high at 1908, and the price has been rejected by the key resistance(1) at 1908-10 during the Asian session. Selling began at the European session, and the price has traded between 1896-1906 thereafter. The day ended at 1898, below the 1900 level.


Selling pressure remains heavy above 1900, so fart the price hasn’t been able to trade above 1900 for too long. Expect the price to stay range-bound between 1891-1910(3) in the early sessions. If the price breaks the S-T support line(2), expect it to consolidate toward 1883(4).


The bullish signal(4) that was mentioned yesterday was neutralized by the market with the long wick(4.1). 1900-08 resistance zone is still valid, 1887-1900(5) should be the trading range for today on the daiy chart. From a pure chart pattern & technically analysis perspective, it should be perfect timing to deploy an M-T short-selling strategy above 1900 after the reversal yesterday along with the uptrend channel (6). However, the market is highly influenced by the news from Ukraine lately, make sure a tight stop loss is in place.

1897


Market price: 1896

S-T Supports:

Gold Trend 04/03 – The next bull after US stocks & crypto ?

A series of US data was released last week. The durable goods orders and 4Q GDP announced early on Tue’s and Wed’s were both below market expectations. However, the price of gold remained in a narrow range. It wasn’t until Thur’s release of the core PCE price index that the gold price finally broke clear the resistance zone of 2035-40. On Fri, a new round of buying was triggered after a weaker-than-expected manufacturing PMI pushed the price to the recent high of 2088. The latest CME FedWatch indicates that the probability of a rate cut in May is now around 27%, while the likelihood for June has risen to around 70%. The rate cut news/rumours will push the gold price higher, however, the 2088 resistance still needs to be clear. Once the price passes 2088, the 1st target can be set at around 2045. A strict stop-loss order should be in place if you choose to short-selling above 2080. 1-Hour Chart – Gold has triggered a round of buying after escaping the triangle pattern (1) last Thur. The upward momentum has accelerated on Fri’s US session, passing the early Feb high of 2065(2) and reaching the Dec high of 2088(3). The buying momentum failed to carry on at the early Asian session back from the weekend. A high-volume market condition is needed for gold to clear the 2088 resistance, pay attention to Tue’s non-manufacturing PMI, Wed.’s Powell speech. Consider the trading range of 2065-88(4) for now. Daily Chart – Gold escapes downward channel (4) last week, and the M-T trend shifted from a downtrend to a sideways consolidation, where the range has expanded from 1985-2065(5) to 1985-2088(5.1).
